Mary Bailey, Managing Director of Last Prisoner Project, said: "We are both humbled and grateful for partners like Green Thumb Industries who support our mission to help those negatively and disproportionately affected by the criminalization of cannabis. Green Thumb's ongoing dedication to our efforts is very much valued and appreciated."
